Some of the best views of the Detroit skyline can be found upon the 13th floor of the Greektown Casino while you're stood waiting for the elevator (yes really). Take a quick glance out the window and you'll spy the vivid unmistakeable red brick of the St Mary Roman Catholic church in the foreground, so vivid against the cream, the beige brick of it's historical counterparts that came to make up Downtown, their façades reflecting against the exterior of the Renaissance Center which sits alongside the Detroit riverfront - a symbol of their modern counterparts. Greektown is always busting with life - Greek music is always playing, street artists drawing, people coming and going from some of the best eateries Detroit has to offer. Slowly but surely the skyscrapers office spaces are refilling as businesses relocate to the city or are being refurbished into apartments, Downtown Detroit can't be written off just yet.
It's all a very grand sight to look out upon, to stop a while and take it all in.
